STUDENT ASSISTANT (HIWI) POSITION (40H/MONTH)

GENERATION OF CELL MICROFABRICATION FOR 3D NETWORKS
We are hiring a student assistant (Hiwi) for 4 months (40 hrs/month) for the following project: ''Generation of cell microfabrication for 3D networks''; from January 2023 to April 2023. The overall goal of this project is to use a 3D laser microprinter to generate highly accurate 3D microprinted scaffolds to study 3D cell proliferation and migration in a predefined design. 
 
The student (background: biology/biochemistry, biophysics, and similar disciplines) will work on the following tasks: 
  • Design of CAD files using Inventor AutoDesk (in collaboration with Dr. Mohammadreza Taale or Malin Schmidt);
  • Mechanical characterization of 3D laser microprinted structures by microindentation using Pavone Optics11 (in collaboration with Tobias Spratte or Dr. Federico Colombo);
  • Basic biological and biophysical mechanisms underlying cell proliferation, migration and organization in 3D artificial micro-scaffolds (3D cell culture, immunofluorescence staining, live/dead assays, qPCR, confocal and tracking microscopy).
